Dave Robinson's Photos

This site is a selection of my photo collection, mostly of the Teesside and North Yorkshire areas in North East England, also including the English Lake District and various areas of Scotland.  Any comments would be welcome.

I am planning on updating this site with some new photos soon.

I also have some photos on Flickr at Dave Rob's Flickr Page

and some videos on YouTube at Dave Rob's YouTube Videos

Most pages contain a selection of thumbnails created with IrfanView, click on the link or photo here to see the thumbnail selection, then click on the thumbnail to see the full size image if required.  IrfanView is an excellent piece of FREEWARE, very useful for re-sizing, compressing and creating thumbnails. Later webpages use Adobe Lightroom.

Most photos are taken with a Canon EOS 10D, older ones used a Canon Powershot S20 and scanned film ones used the Canon EOS 650.

This site uses the NTL and Catalyst2 servers.  My URL www.DaveRob.org.uk is supplied and re-directed by uk2.net.
